The specks of dirt on the window remind her of the stars.
She starts to count them, wondering
where the dirt came from,
which route, which track.
Her mind wanders way above clouds,
she loses herself in space.
With her fingers, she traces the night sky blueprint,
Cassiopeia, Delphinus, Orion…
the train jerks, her hand slips -
only her reflection, amongst the dirt, remains.
